the story of the film part 2
I shot everything in about a week. The film does a pretty good job of presenting that week so I’ll stay away from that here.
I played with editing stuff here and there and some bits worked better than others. I started working more and more, which meant I would only have a bit of time every few months during which this was something I might or might not get to. At some point I pretty much finished chapters 1-3 and set them aside. A few others took shape pretty quickly but others seemed they would never manifest as anything watchable. Whenever I pulled it out I seemed to make some small amount of progress but it never felt like it was close to done. There were important parts of the story that simply didn’t seem to fit.
In addition to all of the work I was doing, I moved a ton over the next several years. Over to Prospect Heights, then back to Williamsburg but over by the J train, then giving that place up and spending 10 months working in Chicago, then to Manhattan with 4 months working in LA to break that up just 9 months in. It was a little intense. At some point I stopped looking at this stuff.
